If you are paying attention to dates, ignore them. I have had some difficulty posting to the blog. But all the upcoming photos were taken during my February, 2012 visit. I took well over 1,000, so it takes a while to organize and explain.
Like much of Havana, El Prado boasts beautifully renovated buildings, for the tourists, alongside those that are falling apart. Some may look abandoned, but actually are occupied residences. I was invited into a residence for coffee, and I have some amazing photos of the interior, for another day.
But these are some paradoxical photos along El Prado of the neglected merged with the pampered.
